Back in January, a public hearing was held to allow comments concerning changes that could be coming the North Carolina's hunting and fishing rules.
The proposed changes outlined at the hearing would affect the 2014-2015 fishing, hunting and trapping seasons. Though the meeting took place a month ago, public comment will be accepted through February 14 before any decisions are made by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC).
“In February 2014, after considering comments from the public and consulting with staff, the Wildlife Resources Commission will make final decisions on the proposed regulations,” said James Cogdell, chairman of the commission. “The rules that are adopted will then be available in the N.C. Inland Fishing, Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest 2014-2015.The Regulations Digest will be available on Aug. 1, 2014 from your licensing agent and on the NCWRC website at www.ncwildlife.org.”
